What is facial cupping?
The ancient practice of facial cupping uses suction cups directly on skin to promote circulation and relieve muscle tension. The practice even claims to help with sinus congestion and headaches. Facial cupping is meant to increase blood circulation and stimulate the facial cells that are responsible for collagen production. In turn, this can brighten your skin, minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and tone your chin, jawline, and neck by decreasing puffiness.

You can definitely feel your skin being slightly pulled, but surprisingly, it’s not a bad feeling at all. In fact, it’s quite relaxing.
What’s the aftercare of facial cupping?
